The Big Pancake Party 2013.

17 Mar

A month ago, The Secret Showcase Presents hosted it’s annual pancake party in aid of The Big Issue Foundation. I would again like to thank everyone who was involved in making this event possible and to all you kind music and food loving folk who came down and gave generously to the Foundation. We raised £180 which will go towards developing schemes and organising more events to help raise more money and awareness for the homeless.

There are a few people in particular that I would like to say a special big thank you too.

Benn Gunn and his papa Gaz, Burning Condors and CC Smugglers who all played great sets and donated CD’s and Vinyl as a prize for the Raffle.

The Big Issue Foundation Team Amy Howell, Moira Hornik, Patricia Wynne, Graham Booth and Stephen Robertson who organised and cooked the best pancakes in London Town and Ravinder – Sainsburys Local in Vauxhall who generously donated the ingredients for the pancakes and choice of fillings.

My friends Tristan Foster-Young who helped to collect donations at the door, Isobel Brierley, Chanelle Harrington (for photos too), Llao and Sebastian who helped set up (and pack away) and make the place look even more beautiful that it was, Will Boyd who also took some blinding snaps from the night and my sister Stef and her friend Adela for making sure I got home OK after an innocent mishap with the cash machine. It gets confusing now that everything has a pin number.

I would also like to say thank you to The Macbeth and all their wonderful staff for having us and supporting the cause.

It was a while since the last Secret Showcase event and it was really lovely to see so many people that I haven’t seen for what felt like an age. This may have been one of the reasons why I was a little worse for wear come the end of the night, It would have been rude of me to say no to a drink from old friends, besides the Macbeth agreed to donate a % of the takings for the cause. All the more reason to drink and be merry I thought. So Thank you all for your continued support, It means so much to me and the Big Issue Foundation that you all came. The night couldn’t have happened without you. Until the next time, Thanks again, see you all soon.
